Jimmy Howard Ready For The Action

from Larry Mahoney of the Bangor Daily News,

“There’s a lot of excitement in the air. I wish we had a chance to play a couple of preseason games, but everyone is in the same boat,” said Howard.

He spent the year in Detroit, training with his Red Wing teammates four to five times a week.

“We’d have 10-15 players every day,” said Howard.

He is currently training with other NHL players in Phoenix after receiving an invitation to attend the sessions.

“I jumped all over it. It’s another way to help myself get ready. We’re scrimmaging,” said Howard, who will begin his fourth season as the No. 1 goalie for the Red Wings after spending four seasons with Grand Rapids in the American Hockey League.

He said he was pleased with the terms agreed upon by the NHL Players Association and the NHL after the four-month, 113-day lockout.

“It’s fair. It’s what we were looking for from the beginning,” said Howard, who added that he is in good shape to start the season.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
